you know i have to tell you about the recent scandals that
12:26pm
have occurred in the country. and of course congressman woo is the recent high-profile man involved. but i want you to meet my special guest marita corcoran, she's written a book, it's called "house interrupted." this is an incredible book. and she knows firsthand about this. and the question that she answers in this book is how does the woman move on with her life? you have firsthand experience don't you? unfortunately. >> yes, i do. 14 years into my marriage i found out that my husband was a sex addict. that he was leading a completely double life behind my back. >> what did you do? how did it devastate you? >> the initial disclosure was made over the phone while he was in rehab and i had no idea he had been doing this kind of behavior. this was 14 years ago when this first happened and so there was not the talk about sexual addiction as there is today.
12:27pm
so that's a good thing. but when this first happened, it was devastating. everything -- when i found out about it. everything around me died. my whole world ceased to exist. >> of course and what do you tell women to do? how to get through this in this book? >> through my experiences it's written around my journal entries and a woman can follow along with me as i go through coming to terms with what has happened and then trying to rebuild my life of self- respect, of self-worth and living a good life. >> and you can move through it as painful as it is. you can get to the other side. this is so timely and it's interesting that your book is coming out now. it's called "is house, interrupted -- a house, interrupted" and you're going to have a book signing tonight at 7:00 at barnes & noble at tyson's corner and you can meet her and ask her even more questions about this book. but it is so timely. you didn't know it was going to
